Article Preview

In this paper the tensile and fatigue life tests of carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy prepreg (CFRP) were conducted in order to investigate the influence of volume ratio and fiber orientation. CFRP/Al7075 laminate hybrid composite (CARALL) consists of alternating Al7075-T6 sheets and carbon epoxy prepreg (epoxy 121oC #2560). The fiber orientations of CFRP were applied to the extent of 0/90° and ±45°. The CFRP layers are 1ply, 3plies and 5plies in case of 0/90°, and 1ply and 2plies in case of ±45° of carbon fiber direction, respectively. The tensile strength decreased with the volume ratio of CFRP in both the cases of fiber orientation 0/90° and ±45°. The fatigue life is lower in large volume ratio of CFRP than in small volume ratio in both the cases of fiber orientation 0/90° and ±45°.
